Hello!!! A few weeks ago when I did a post on some makeup brands that I've never tried and my friend Lauren from Will Sing for Makeup was sweet enough to send me some goodies from Laura Mercier. She sent me a delux size of the foundation primer and a caviar stick in the color Moonlight. Thank you so much Lauren for sending me these!
I was super excited because this caviar stick is beyond gorgoues, which brings me to today's post. I mentioned this in my favorites post, but it's so pretty that I thought it deserved a post on its own.
The description on Laura Mercier's website claims these caviar sticks to be creamy, long wearing, transfer free, won't crease, blends easily, and have rich color payoff.
Moonlight is described as a metallic pewter color. This color is so beautiful and makes a great lid color, which is what I have been using it for, but I can see it being one of those 'one wash wonder' colors that you can blend into the crease a little for a fast and easy eye look.
Here I am wearing moonlight all over my lid, and I used some matte colors from the Tartelette palette in my crease. This is the makeup I was wearing in my October favorites video and it's been my everyday eye look for the past two weeks.
My overall thoughts-
-Since this was in my monthly favorites, you can guess that I love this.
-The color is gorgoues and I can 100% agree with all the claims on the website.
-This is definitely budge proof and it doesn't crease at all. The color payoff is amazing and definitely rich.
-Unlike a lot of shadow sticks or cream shadows I've tried, this one you do not have to set with a powder shadow afterwards. Which goes with the transfer free claims.
Overall I highligly recommend these and I I will definitely be checking more out at the sephora VIB sale this weekend!
Have you tried any of these Caviar Sticks before?
-hubby got me a new camera to film my YouTube videos with and I used it for the first time in my October favorites videos. It has a view finder so filming is a lot easier now! I also thought it picked up lighting better and I didn't look so pale and washed out (aka why does my blush/bronzer disappear in camera??) what did you guys think?
-I have some videos planned to film next week including a makeup tutorial, my favorite natural beauty products, and haul from the speohra VIB sale!
Yay! I'm so glad you like it as much as I do. The 4 other colors I have are Amethyst, Orchid, Rosegold, and Copper. Once you get one, you definitely want more!ReplyDelete
I'll have to check out those colors you mentioned! I definitely want more now lol!! Thanks again Lauren!Delete
hi dear,great job!!i love your make up..i like the way you put eyelinerReplyDelete
So sweet of Lauren to send you some goodies!! I haven't tried this, but it sounds fabulous!! It looks like such an awesome shade!!ReplyDelete
OMG, same here! Blush and bronzer gone...don't know exactly what it is, but my guess has to be something with the settings. My camera isn't a DSLR so there isn't a whole lot I can do for now. Crossing my fingers for a new camera soon.
This is the first one I've tried of these but it's amazing!!Delete
And I'm so glad you understand my filming struggles LOL! I'll have to check the settings like you said!
I love the eye look! I haven't tried anything from this brand, but I'll have to check these out!ReplyDelete
Thank you! This was the first I've tried from the brand!Delete
it looks great! i love a shadow stick sometimes when i want a quick look!ReplyDelete
I've read only good things about Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks but never tried them myself. I do have a few eyeshadow crayons which is similar though and yes, it makes it so easy to apply eyeshadows and it's pretty much what I do too, crayon all over the lid and sometimes matte eyeshadow on the crease. LOL!ReplyDelete

I need to get some more shadow crayons! Seems like ones I've tried before I didn't care much for but now I'll have to look into them.Delete
That color is so pretty! I wish my camera had a view finder. It would make things so much easier for me too!ReplyDelete
It's so hard to film without one! But the view finder is hard to get use to because I kept staring at the screen instead of the lens lol and it was weird to see myself talk hahaDelete
After seeing this in your faves, I went through my stash and swore I had one of these but I don't and now I know what I'm going to be treating myself to next!! And also, now that you mention it, I could tell a difference with your video :) Can't wait for more!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you can tell the difference in my video Margo! Thank you for mentioning it! And you'll love these caviar sticks!Delete
I've never tried her caviar sticks or any makeup. Just body products. It looks SO GOOD! I love the color! Gotta get me one of those. HaHaHa Congratulations on your new camera Ashley! Can't wait to see your upcoming videos.ReplyDelete
Thank you Kim! And now that I've tried this I want more of them and definitely want to try more of her makeup!Delete
This looks so good! omg I always want to try eyeshadow sticks but obviously Laura Mercier is too expensive for me, yet other brands that has similar eyeshadow sticks are so hard to find in here, although there's some from Etude House but I'm not sure if it's as budge proof as this :/ReplyDelete

If you try one that's not budge proof you can always put a powder shadow on top to keep it from moving!Delete
I haven't tried this brand but I want too. This looks great!ReplyDelete
They are really good!Delete
Maaan, I have to wear falsies to get my lashes looking like yours, hahaha. The caviar stick looks really good! It'd probably be really nice to use as a base as well, if they come in matte shades. Hooray for the new camera! Your hubby is so sweet :)ReplyDelete

I wax excited about the camera! And I'll have to check for matte shades, but yes they would make a good base!Delete
